Why donate?

Literacy needs are ever-increasing in Rutherford County, and your donations allow us to sustain free programs and services for adults and children in our community who struggle with basic literacy skills.  Each dollar is another step towards improving lives in Rutherford County. Your donation will help Read To Succeed continue to deliver literacy support to the community through education, services, and awareness programs.

What can your donation do for literacy in Rutherford County?

Read To Succeed is funded through community donations and grants. We rely on donations to provide: 

  • reading time, supervised literacy activities for families, and a free meal during Family Literacy Nights 
  • parent-child small group programs to encourage the love of reading in toddler and preschool-age children
  • free books for families 
  • reading programs for middle and high school students to promote conversations around race, coming of age, and education
  • classroom libraries for new teachers working in Murfreesboro City or Rutherford County Schools
  • one-on-one basic literacy tutoring for adults 18-years-of-age or older
  • ESL (English Second Language) classes for adults seeking to improve their reading, writing, listening, and speaking abilities
  • English conversation practice
  • citizenship classes

Every single dollar helps.

$25 helps us buy books for an entire family.
$50 can purchase enough materials to train an adult literacy tutor, cover the cost of one month’s payments for the Read To Succeed cell phone, and pay for a curriculum for family literacy programming.
$100 covers the cost of materials for one adult learner and training for ESL volunteers.
